                                                     July




The meeting day and location has been changed for July. The meeting will be Friday, July 17 at
Harry’s Hofbrau, 390 Saratoga Avenue, San Jose. Come early and have dinner with your fellow
members. We also will meet at Harry’s on August 14 and then decide if we want to make a
permanent meeting location change.

June 13 was the display at Capital Mall. This year we had some guests attend, Carl & Bernie‟s granddaughters.
Ray took some great pictures. Send him an email and he will send you the link to review them.

Doc has arranged a display for the residents of Sunrise Assisted Living in Belmont on June 27. This is a free
display but you will be wined and dined. He may have an opening so give him a call if you would like to attend.
We did this display a couple of years ago and the residents really appreciated it.

Next up is the Palo Alto Concours. Many members will be showing various cars. Bill Croxton will show his „67
Mustang, which he just restored (rumor has it, the car has already won two awards, including Best of Show). Hal
& Becky Schuette, Steve & Kathy Pedone, Joan Peterson, Al Thomas and Jenny Jump have been involved with
the Concours for many years. Go and give them your support.

July 9 -12 is the first annual Hot San Jose Nights. It is still not too late to sign up. Their web site is:
www.hotsanjosenights.com. Carl Epolite is the sponsor for SCVT. Please let him know if you are signing up.
There is a lot going on during those days and it should be fun.

Next is the annual Kirk Family Picnic on July 18. Please contact Don Reisinger for signing up. There is more
information in this Fan.

Hot August Nights is coming up fast (July 31 – Aug 9). If you are attending please let Sandie Kay know. If you
need a room please let her know as there may be some available. There is more information in this Fan.

The summer is quickly passing but there are still great events that members are hosting. Let‟s wash the T-Bird
and join in the fun!

Your Prez,

Joe Ryan

food was good and as usual everyone had a good time. The Capitola Rod & Custom Show was June 5 - 7. The event
included a overnight stay, dinner, a cruise, the show, breakfast and some enjoyed Pajaro Dunes on Sunday. The event
was hosted by the Mann‟s and the Affrunti‟s. Doc discussed the plans for his trip to Alaska following the Regional in
Vancouver. Steve Pedone discussed the Palo Alto Concours, in which over 500 vehicles are being shown. Carl discussed
the plans being made for Hot San Jose Nights in mid July. SCVT will have good representation at the show with about

passed around and will be passed around again at the July meeting. The sign-up sheet for the Giants game was passed.

Editor: Just want to thank everyone for their input to the FAN. If you are looking for past articles and can't find your
copy of the FAN, go to the website, santaclaravalleybirds.com. The Webmaster has posted 2008 and 2009 Fan‟s that you
can download. Thanks again and keep those articles and updates comin' in.
CTCI: The CTCI rep was unavailable.
Historian: There were new additions to the historian‟s books.
Fund Raising: Al & Jenny covered the June Father‟s Day raffle items.
Old Business: Discussions were held before the break in regard to the ongoing situation in regards to the meeting room at
West Valley College and the issues with getting the new contract for 2009-2010. Charlie Affrunti brought up to the
membership the use of a room at Harry‟s Hofbrau for the July and August meetings and potentially more often thereafter.
Members balloting will take place at Harry‟s. The results will determine whether or not this is a viable alternative
meeting place for SCVT in the future. Members expressed some concerns about the change and the possible problems
that could arise from holding a meeting in a restaurant where eating could interrupt the meeting.
New Business: Steve saw a ‟66 Mustang at the new Sunnyvale Toyota.

Cars For ABC’s, May 30, 2009 Hosted by Billy and Heather Mann
See photos in the Photo Album Section.

Backroads Cruise to Moss Landing, May 31, 2009 Hosted by Rick and Diane Deutsch
We started the expedition (18 T-Birds) with a short convoy over to Club Auto Sport in San Jose for a
look at their new auto storage facility and “Condo‟s for Cars.” It was very impressive and enjoyed by
all. Our contact overslept, so we were 45 minutes behind schedule. We headed south on Almaden Road
and past Calero and Uvas Reservoirs to Hecker Pass and on towards the ocean. We had to skip the
Elkhorn Slough area due to our lunch reservations being overdue. We parked in the Monterey Marine
Labs lot. Lunch was at Phil‟s Seafood House. Next was shopping at the many Antique stores in town.
On the way home, we stopped at the Giant Artichoke in Castroville for some munchies. A good time
was had by all. See photos in the Photo Album Section.

Capitola Rod & Custom Classic, June 5-7, 2009 Hosted by The Affrunti‟s & The Mann‟s

When we arrived we were met by a host of residents, friends and relatives of residents and potential
residents invited because this was also a low key marketing event.

Between 4 and 5 PM all the spectators had a chance to view the cars and kick tires with SCVT members
as we were treated to snacks and beverages of our choice. This was followed by a sit down dinner.
Awards (Starbuck gift cards) were given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place based on people‟s choice voting.

Following dinner we were entertained by the Serenaders (40‟s – 50‟s swing band), who were playing
great dance music and many took to the dance floor. There were a number of Ginger Rogers/Fred
Astaire wannabe‟s on the dance floor.

From all reports it appears that everyone had a good time. Thanks to all who participated.

Palo Alto Concours, June 28, 2009

of the event from planning and organizing, to assisting with the logistics of the event itself. Members

Handelman/Gerbasi – ‟55 Nomad, Kay‟s ‟33 Chevy, K. Pedone ‟56 T-Bird, S. Pedone ‟48 Chysler, J.

SCVT Kirk Family Picnic - July 18, 2009
Time to make your plans for July 18. That‟s the day for the annual SCVT Kirk Family Picnic.

The location is, again, Linda Vista Park in Cupertino and the start time is approximately 10:00AM. We
will send out a map and directions just prior to the picnic. Thanks again to the Parkers for helping us get
this great location again. This is out 4th year at the park.

We‟ll follow a similar format starting with appetizers and moving on to the main meal. We‟ll try to start
the games a little earlier but that will depend on just how much “appetizing” occurs.

You have a choice of Hot Dogs, Hamburgers or Chicken. And we will ask each family to bring
something to share. A sign up sheet will be passed around at the June and July meetings with
suggestions. For anyone who doesn‟t have a preference, we‟ll ask them to bring something to fill in.
We‟ll try to get some balance and not have too much food. Ha Ha Ha!

The current plan for the fun and games is similar to last year with our now traditional Bocce Tourney,
the Frisbee Toss, Hillbilly Horseshoes and, of course, Bingo. Truly fabulous prizes will be awarded.

Set side July 18th for this great event. The charge for the picnic remains the same at $5 for adults and $3
for children under 12. SCVT provides the meat and fixings, drinks, prizes, etc. You can call or email us
your intent to attend. Be sure to tell us your choice for the meat course: Hot Dogs,
Hamburgers/Cheeseburgers or Chicken. Don Reisinger 888-206-0148, donreis@earthlink.net.

Hot August Nights - August 3-9, 2009 Hosted by Dennis & Sandie Kay
This year the HAN event will be the week of August 3-9. Members of SCVT will caravan up on both
Wednesday and Thursday mornings. We are planning to have lunch Thursday at Awful, Awful in Reno
and dinner at The Nugget in Sparks Friday night. Many members are staying at the Nugget but some
will be in Reno or even Lake Tahoe. In any case, we will all be able to visit on Friday night at the buffet
dinner and then listen to some great music and watch or participate in the cruise.

If you are going to HAN please let us know so we can include you in all the correspondence. It doesn‟t
matter if you are taking a classic or generic. If you have an extra room please let us know before
releasing it back to the hotel. If you need a room please let us know so we can put you in touch with
someone with an extra.

HAN is always a fun event. If you are at all interested and don‟t know what to expect please reach out
to us and we will fill in the blanks. Contact: The Kay‟s 650-341-6868 , denkay4adr@yahoo.com.

San Mateo Car Show & BBQ- August 15, 2009 Hosted by Joe & Pat Ryan
This is a great local car show that benefits Children with special needs. You can download the
registration form at: http://carcrazypromotions.org/. A tri-tip or BBQ chicken lunch is included and the
food has always been great. They always save SCVT a special place to park in the shade. Please get
your registration in early as they have limited space and we want them to continue to save our parking.

49 in ’09, aka, North to Alaska- August 21 - ??, 2009 by Doc Dockter
The Chick Magnet (Doc‟s T-Bird) is becoming very restless about getting “on the road again.” I think
he‟s been listening to Willie Nelson too long. Does he realize the price of gas these days?

I‟m happy to report our next adventure is a go. We now have Betsy Bird („57), driven by Lucy Clark of
Southern California and Ira („57), driven by Gordon Peterson of Western Colorado, joining the Chick
Magnet („56) on the 49 in ‟09, aka, North to Alaska adventure. Red th‟ Zed, a brand new Harley ridden
by John and Connie Herrell of Northern California, will join us on the way. Lucy has created a new web
site so you will be able to follow the tour through her journal and posted pictures (see below).

On August 21, the day after the Richmond, BC regional convention, we will board an Alaska Marine
Highway ferry at Bellingham, WA and cruise the beautiful inside passage (popular with cruise ships) to
Juneau, AK. In Juneau, we will take our mandatory pictures of Betsy Bird, the Chick Magnet, and Ira in
front of the Alaska Capitol building and then do some sightseeing in the area. Note: There are no roads
into Juneau, thus the need for ferry access.

We will again board the ferry for a short trip to Skagway, AK where we will unleash Betsy Bird, the
Chick Magnet and Ira to begin driving the Yukon Territory and Alaska. Some of the places we plan on
seeing are Whitehorse, Yukon Territory (Red th‟ Zed joins us here for the rest of the trip), North Pole,
Fairbanks, Denali National Park, Healy, Wasilla, Anchorage, Palmer and Tok. The current estimate is
2,000 miles of driving in Alaska and the Yukon Territory.

After driving the highways of Alaska and Yukon Territory we will return to Skagway, board the ferry
system on September 6 and cruise back to Bellingham WA then drive to our respective homes.
If you are interested in joining our tour, please call me at (650) 591-5939 or (650)759-4302 or email me
at odockter@comcast.net. For more info, visit www.home.earthlink.net/~48in08 and

The Giants Are On A Roll- August 30, 2009 Hosted by Don & Laurie Reisinger

After a sloooooooooooooow start, the Giants have picked things up recently and that outstanding
pitching staff has come around. The odds are that we‟ll see a few runs, a pitching gem and the Giants
will be in the middle of the playoff battle. Now, this could be fiction, but it is only June. This year
we‟re heading to the game on a Sunday, August 30. We‟ll have slightly better seats moving a bit closer
to home plate. I think we‟ll move up at least 2 sections form previous years.

The game starts at 1:05 PM and in what has become an integral art of this event, a large part of the
group will get to the game on CalTrain. Details on the timing will follow, as we get closer to the date.
A sign up sheet was passed around at the April meeting and we have 35 members indicating they are
going already. We will have to make the initial ticket purchase soon – most likely right after the July
meeting to secure tickets. So, if you want to go, but haven‟t signed up, let us know. If you aren‟t sure
also let us know. For those who signed up in April, unless you want to confirm or change your quantity,
we‟re good for now. We can get a larger number of tickets this year, but the better area we are moving
into doesn‟t have as many open seats so don‟t delay.

For those of you who have indicated you are attending; the tickets will be purchased soon and after that
we‟ll need payment to the club to reimburse the treasury for the expense.
Play Ball! Contact: Don Reisinger 888-548-2402, or Donreis@earthlink.net
